How to craft Trash Cubes in Raft

To make Trash Cubes in Raft, you need a Recycler. Once you arrive at the raft, open the crafting menu and look for the Recycler under Other. Once you have the Recycler ready, you can start making your own Trash Cubes for use in the game. You need at least 150 units of materials in order to make one Trash Cube. The Recycler can only handle a maximum of 600 units at a time.

  • Four Plastics
  • Four Metal Ingots
  • Bolt
  • Hinge
  • Circuit Board

To use the Recycler, select the material you want to use and press the action button on it. The amount you need to use depends on the material you choose. Some materials fill the Recycler quickly, while others do not. Furthermore, some materials cannot be used to create Trash Cubes.
